Teddie With Stocking


Good evening everyone - just a quick post from me this evening ... first day back at work after my mega sniffles and boy am I tired!!

Every year I promise myself that I am going to crack on with my Christmas cards during the year rather than getting into a complete lather come November ... but alas every year is the same and my New Year resolution crashes and burns!! This year I really have no excuse for not getting started though, as I received a fabulous package of stamps for Christmas from my lovely friend Jennifer which included the most adorable Christmas stamp imaginable ... and here it is.


Isn't teddie totally the cutest?? This really was a wonderful Christmas surprise from a fantastic friend :-)

I have to admit though, one of the reasons that I tend to shy away from cards using the colour red is that for some reason the photographed colour never seems to come out right ... all the reds on the card are somewhat darker than the photo shows.

Stamps: Stampavie "Teddie's Stocking"; sentiment by Crafter's Companion;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; Stickles on flower and birdie's hat;
Supplies: poinsetta flower from Crafts4U2Do; gems from The Hobby House; ribbon from my stash;
Tools: "Decorative Labels Eight" nestabilities; Cheery Lynn "Holly Flourish" die; Cuttlebug "Holly Ribbons" embossing folder.

Challenges:
Allsorts #195 - Animals
I ♥ Promarkers #156 - Four Legged Friends
Little Red Wagon #115 - Totally Teddies
Oldie But A Goodie - Bright Colours
Kaboodle #160 - Use Any Bling
The Pink Elephant #188 - Anything Goes
Sparkles Christmas #25 - Anything Goes

Until tomorrow, when I'll be back with another Papertake Weekly Guest Designer card.
Hugs,

  1. OMG Pauline, I knew you would do something beautiful with your stamps, but this is beyond what I imagined!!! It is gorgeous!!! Love everything about it. Your design is lovely.

    I have been trying to find out the name of that nestie, that has been on so many cards (wasn't even sure it was by Spellbinders), so I can put it on my wish list.

    I also have that embossing folder, and have never used it...naughty, naughty!

    Hope you are feeling somewhat better...I will write soon...life has been crazy lately.

    Big Hugs,
    Jennifer. x
